PTPP does it his favorite way on Bermuda Dunes: Froggy Style. Using a Basic or Croll ascender clipped low on the harness and a single jug above is the best way to ascend a free-hanging rope. Use a chest harness, or a bungy cord around your neck to keep the Basic/Croll moving up with you. The key is to minimize slack and dead space in the setup. You want to stand up on the upper jug, and have the lower ascender slide up just below it. That way, you maximize each stroke up the rope.
